The song is based on the Ukrainian folk chant " Shchedryk ". The carol is metrically bistable, and a listener can focus on either meter or switch between them. It has been performed in many genres: classical , metal , jazz , country music , rock , and pop. The piece has also been featured in films, television shows, and parodies. Conductor of the Ukrainian Republic Choir Oleksander Koshyts also spelled Alexander Koshetz commissioned Leontovych to create the song based on traditional Ukrainian folk chants, and the resulting new work for choir, "Shchedryk", was based on four notes Leontovych found in an anthology. The original folk story related in the song was associated with the coming New Year , which, in pre- Christian Ukraine, was celebrated with the coming of spring in April. The original Ukrainian title translates to "the generous one"  or is perhaps derived from the Ukrainian word for bountiful shchedryj ,  and tells a tale of a swallow flying into a household to proclaim the bountiful year that the family will have. The songs sung for this celebration are known as Shchedrivky. The song was first performed by students at Kiev University in December , but the song lost popularity in Ukraine shortly after the Soviet Union took hold.

I'm no doctor so what am I supposed to do twiddle my thumbs in our room while he gets back. I'm firmly in the RUN camp.
And that my friend, is just a hint of the extent of the brain wash that Mormons experience. Nobody has prepared her for one, definitely haven't prepared her for a healthy physical relationship. It takes an incredible amount of self discipline to first find and then be able to maintain a balance between life and medicine. I let people assume what they will. There are all kinds of Mormons, and we as exmormons should know better than to stereotype our former selves. I had a lot of things going on in my personal life as well, so maybe a relationship wouldn't have worked regardless. Should I marry him.
